Welcomed Guinean President Alpha Condé to @StateDept today. We discussed Guinea’s upcoming elections & I reiterated the critical need for regular, democratic transitions of power for a thriving democracy. We look forward to working together to advance our strong relationship.
Grateful to #Brazil for our strong partnership & applaud their decisive leadership in addressing the crisis in #Venezuela . Pleased to launch the U.S.-Brazil Strategic Partnership Dialogue with Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo today. Look forward to taking our relationship to new heights!
Thank you, Concerned Women for America, for inviting me to speak in honor of your 40th anniversary. Your dedication to #religiousfreedom does you credit- it’s America's first and most foundational freedom, and we must all work to protect this unalienable right both at home and abroad.
In honor of her courage and fierce commitment to service after the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in East Africa, I’m proud to recognize Information Management Specialist Lizzie Slater as the first selectee of our #HeroesofUSDiplomacy initiative. Congratulations, Lizzie.
The events of 9/11 shook our nation to its core. But the pain and sorrow that day gave life to a new love for our fellow Americans, and all fellow human beings. Today we honor those we lost and ensure future generations #neverforget this tragedy or doubt our astonishing resilience.
9/11 still haunts me. Almost 20 years later, I still reflect on that day & I’m resolved that we’ve got to get counterterrorism right. @realDonaldTrump recognizes this too. We have got to make sure we apply U.S. resources appropriately to address the threat of terror. #NeverForget
Big thanks to @kansasstateuniversity students for attending the kickoff Landon Lecture and meeting with me afterwards. You represent the best of America and embody qualities we need: smarts, work ethic, and a sense of humor! @StateDept loves to hire candidates just like YOU. Visit careers.state.gov. GO CATS!
A tradition of unalienable rights has made our nation the greatest in history and blessed all other nations too. Honored to visit @kansasstateuniversity to emphasize our duty to protect and promote this tradition at home and abroad. This is how we honor America and Americanism. #NOPLACELIKEHOME
Glad to have met with @kansasstateuniversity students on their campus today. You embody the promise of America. I'm hopeful for our future with bright young people like you at the helm. Best of luck in your future endeavors! #GOARMY#GOAIRFORCE
For decades American diplomats have set the standard for human rights leadership, always taking up the cause of the vulnerable, but we can’t become complacent. We owe it to all Americans to uphold this noble tradition of leadership to secure unalienable rights at home and abroad.
Grateful to be here in the Sunflower State for the @kansasstateuniversity prestigious Landon Lecture Series. We face a dizzying array of challenges on the global stage today, and I treasure the opportunity to speak about them with our next generation of leaders. Thanks for having me! #KState#gocats
